Taj Krishna is organising the launch of the book The Untold Charminar - Writings On Hyderabad, edited by Syeda Imam, on 30th June, at the Grand Ballroom. Immediately after the launch, eminent film director Shyam Benegal will head a panel of speakers, including Aparajita Sinha and Narendra Luther, on the topic of Try Beating My Hyderabad Story.

In The Untold Charminar, readers will discover a city they will want to explore, as Sarojini Naidu, Sir Mark Tully and William Dalrymple rub shoulders with Ian Austin, Meenakshi Mukherjee and Anees Jung, regaling you with their feast of hard facts and hearsay; as each foreign visitor shares his story through Narendra Luther; as the filmmakers Shyam Benegal and Nagesh Kukunoor paint their vivid memories of home; as poets, and not just the maverick Makhdoom and Gaddar, raise their voices in song; and as statesmen, academics and aficionados hold forth on the completely different Hyderabad each experienced.

And when Tejaswini Niranjana profiles the vigilante Vijayasanthi, and Dharmender Prasad picks out place names and explains their sometimes almost mystic origins, and as Bachi Karkaria, Omkar Goswami and Harsha Bhogle share their typically offbeat views of a favourite city, readers will be persuaded to believe they have encountered not a city but the inner workings of a very complex character.

Syeda Bilgrami Imam, Fellow of English Literature, Bombay University, moved to shape and head creative teams in India and Central Asia at two leading advertising agencies. Award-winner for public service and brand communications, juror at many fora, and moderator of Aspen Leadership seminars, she enjoys writing the most. Syeda has written for and edited The Positive Side (Roli), The Making of Advertising (Macmillan), Epiphany (Roli) and HU: The Sufi Way (Rumi Foundation).

Entry is by invitations only. Please contact the venue at 6666-2323 for further details.
